County administrator fired; action was not on agenda

PoliticsCANTON — The Madison County Board of Supervisors has fired county administrator David Overby.

In an unexpected move that was not included on yesterday’s agenda, the board voted 3-2 to terminate Overby, who was hired by the board when the members took office in January 2012.

Overby, a certified public accountant, formerly worked as finance director and city clerk for Ridgeland.

The Clarion-Ledger reports the board named Shelton Vance, the county comptroller, as interim administrator while it advertises the opening.
